I had to reinstall windows 10, and then Firefox on my computer, after logging into Firefox on this fresh install (had to reset password), my saved passwords and bookmarks are not there. They still exist on my phone, and my phone is now asking for the new password to start syncing again. If I log in on my phone, will it sync the passwords there to my computer? I am worried syncing will cause the ones on my phone to disappear. Is there any way to export my passwords/bookmarks on the phone(android) to file? As a backup just in case. I logged in on an old computer thinking it would sync, even if it was out of date, but now it also shows 0 passwords saved.

Hallo,

in the recent days, I tried several times to get a new laptop synchronized with the Firefox bookmarks on my main PC. I did it already successfully with my old laptop and with my mobile phone some time ago. But now I have problems, because I cannot confirm my log-in on the new laptop. I am told that I get a mail with the verification code, which I need to enter in 5 minutes. But the mail is alsways received some hours (!!!!) after intitiating it. My email-account is with arcor.de (which is also with vodafone). I found already the advice on your pages, to enter firefox (respective mozilla) on a white list of the provider. But there is no whitelist existing. What can I do now? The five minutes limitation is killing the possibilty to verify my firefox account, if the mail needs hours to reach me. Other mail are coming rather in time.

Best regards, Thomas Roedl

TL;DR: Make sure you're on the latest... turn Sync off on the computer that isn't showing the remote tabs, then turn Sync back on.

Details:

Three computers (Windows), a phone, and a tablet. Firefox 124.0.1.

Sync is enabled and generally seems to be working fine. But I just noticed, on one computer, that when I went to Firefox View, and clicked on "Tabs from Other Devices", that it was showing nothing, other than the, "Log into your Firefox Profile", which I was already logged in... so that was messed up.

Did a number of things, like checking the other computer, manually syncing from the other computer, coming back to this one, and telling it to manually sync. It also seemed to be stuck in syncing (a grayed button that said "Syncing...")

I looked, and there was an update available to 124.0.2, so I used this opportunity to upgrade.

When I came back in, I still didn't have the remote tabs showing up, so I turned off "Sync" entirely, but didn't log out of my Firefox account, and then turned it back on.

Now I'm seeing the remote tabs.

That's how I fixed it. I hope it helps. I see others having Sync problems, and getting terrible suggestions that are not helpful. In this case it's the simple thing that fixed it for me. Turn it off and turn it on again. If that doesn't work, unplug the computer from the wall and plug it into another outlet.  ;-) ( That's a joke for those of you with a sense of humor. )

I have Firefox on 3 devices, I deleted several passwords from 1 device expecting this change to sync to the other 2 devices. Instead for several days the 2 devices showed the original number of passwords whilst the device I made the changes on showed the new amount. Now that device appears to have resynced the passwords I deleted. Am I supposed to delete them on each device?

I have the latest version of FF on all devices.

My Subject pretty well says it. I'm trying to transfer by syncing my desktop Firefox with the Firefox 124 on a newly installed Kubuntu on a new laptop. I have all these functions synced ON. The recent history but not the long-term history, passwords (thank heavens), and all bookmarks got transferred, but not the open tabs/pages. I've done the desktop sync followed by the laptop sync a few times, still without the tabs' transferring. How do i get those transferred?

Hello, I recently created a new sync account for work so I wouldn't have to use my personal sync account. I noticed after creating the new sync account it still retained my passwords from my personal account. Is it safe for me to delete all my personal passwords on the work account or will it also delete those passwords on my personal?

Thanks

Hello everyone,

I was forced to reformat my computer today and I seem to have lost all of my passwords that were saved in Firefox.

I did not back up any of the files that were on my PC as I was unable to do so. I think I have been able to log back in my account and find my passwords.

When I logged back into my Firefox after re-installing it, my passwords are all gone. I need help!

Thank you all

I’m being advised via emails from Mozilla, to update my browser. It says it’s up to date. A cut off of 31 March has been stated.

My mbp won’t run higher than OS X 10.11.6. Firefox 78.15.0esr the latest browser for my system..afaik. I am on the ESR update channel, and think it updates automatically.

Am I being left high & dry by Mozilla? Something in the emails about syncing…? Not convinced if this is something I should be doing something about or not…

Any advice or insights much appreciated. The suggestion seems to be that I will be shut out without passwords and recovery keys and whole load of inconvenience…? Thanks in advance, Tim

On one laptop right-clicking on a tab gives me a Send tab to device option and when I click on it I get a message that the tab was sent. But the tab doesn't arrive on the other laptop. 2. Though I'm using the same version of Firefox on both laptops, I can only find the send tab option on one laptop because the menus are different. And many of the instructions I see online describe items on the menu that just don't show up. I know that I was once -- I don't know how long ago -- able to send a tab from one laptop to another. Most of the instructions are about sending from a phone to a desktop or vice versa. I hope someone can help. Thank you.

I've spent a long time tidying up the passwords on my main PC. Every so often I did a manual sync too. I also imported into Edge occasionally and I noticed a few sites' details there that I had deleted from FF. Strange! Anyway, I finished the tidy up and went to my Android phone (set up to sync) and did the sync there and it looked OK. I then had the idea to look here for the 'extra' one I had seen in Edge and sure enough it was there! I also noticed lots of others I had deleted from the 'Master'. Changes to passwords had been replicated successfully though. What is the logic for syncing in these instances? I then signed out of FF on the phone to stop the sync and deleted one that was common to both and then signed back in and synced - it did delete it from the PC when I synced that. This makes me nervous to delete them all from the phone when signed out and syncing upon re-connect. So, what is the safe way to make the password details from the PC be an exact copy on the phone - no extras?! My thoughts were to disconnect the phone (but hoped it would remove things), delete the details manually if required, sign back in and re-sync. But I don't want to risk the sync actually wiping out the contents of the PC! Thanks! TL;DR - how can I safely remove the synced contents from one device and then resync it. Currently, the contents across devices is different after a sync.

Hello, I am trying to sync my browser data between two computers. On the computer I want the data from I click on "Sign in to Sync". This brings me through a couple menus asking me to sign in with google, and finally sends me to a space to set my password. I already have an account associated with my email and already have a password. I type in my same password again and a red bar with "Unverified Session" appears at the top. I am using the latest version of firefox on windows 11. I do not want to delete my account or make a new one. I have tried as many ways as I can think of to link my existing mozilla account to my browser but it simply will not let me. Another support ticket solved this by creating a new account but I find this solution unsatisfactory.
